RA DICKEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Why You Should Believe in Travis d’Arnaud in 2015

Mets rookie catcher Travis d’Arnaud got off to a bit of a rocky start in his first full season as the New York Mets everyday catcher.

Dickey deal back in 2013. d’Arnaud had been a top 100 prospect in baseball every year since before the 2010 season, and had compiled...

Tim Wakefield: R.A. Dickey ‘Doing What A Knuckleballer Should Do’ (Video)

The Toronto Blue Jays gave up a ton to get R.A. Dickey, and while he hasn’t been a Cy Young-caliber pitcher, he’s certainly been solid with Toronto. Dickey will get the ball Sunday in the series finale with the Red Sox, his 30th start of the season.
